Classic Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
I used minute tapioca instead of the quick cooking stuff (evidently there is a difference), so my pudding thickened much earlier than the recipe describes. Also I accidently added the vanilla at the beginning of the cooking process, and then added more at the end. However, the end result was still tasty!

Perfect White Bread

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
This is essentially the recipe my mom always made when I was small, and the one I've gone back to after trying a half dozen others. Nothing else comes close! The slight tweaks I've made are as follows: I always proof the yeast first in the warm water by adding a generous pinch of sugar and letting it sit for 10 minutes. Seems to get a better result - maybe it wakes the yeast up? Secondly, instead of shortening I use melted and cooled butter. Finally, I mix in five cups of flour to the dough, then mix the final cup in during the kneading process (the dough will start out fairly sticky). Great recipe!

Hot Cross Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I used dried apricots cut up into raisin-sized pieces, and the flavor with the cinnamon and orange peel icing was divine. The buns didn't rise as much as they should have, so I'd advise that if you're going to make this, proof the yeast by letting it dissolve in the warm liquid before adding other ingredients. Nonetheless, everyone loved them. They tasted especially good heated up in the microwave.

Golden Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
This was an easy recipe to make. However, for 9 biscuits use 2 1/4 cups biscuit mix and 2/3 cup milk (not 3 cups of biscuit mix). 425 is also too hot, the biscuits were burning on the bottom after they'd been in the oven for ten minutes.

Blueberry Snack Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
This cake was easy, and so moist and delicious without being over-sweet. A great use for blueberries. I added some cinnamon to the topping, which was very nice. I had to bake this for nearly 45 minutes before it was done.

Hot Water Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Fantastic! I hate making pie crust, and this one was so easy and came out so well. I split the dough into two equal balls, flattened each into a disc, and let them rest in the fridge for 1/2 hr. Definately roll out between wax paper.

Pecan Chicken Pockets

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
These were great, very flavorful and easy. This is a fabulous idea for making homemade hot pockets with any filling.

Sour Cream Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
The nutmeg gives this recipe a wonderful flavor, and the sour cream makes the quiche so smooth and tasty. My only complaint with this recipe is that my pie crust wasn't completely cooked on the bottom. I sauteed a chicken breast with salt and pepper for the chicken component, and substituted the pepper for spinach. We ate this with extra sour cream on top for an added kick. I'll definately make this again with different meat and veg combinations.

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
Using this recipe is why I'm known as the pie maker in the family. The spices complement the peaches perfectly without overpowering it. Amazing recipe!

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
This recipe is fantastic. I Used 1/4 cup flour and 1 heaping tbsp cornstarch. Also made a lattice top. Make sure to put a pan or something under the pie plate in the oven, because this spilled over! After baking, I left it in the pan to cool completely before storing it in the fridge overnight. Everyone loved it, and my fiance told me it was his favorite thing I'd ever made (although he says that about everything). Don't be afraid of the runniness!

I didn't like this as much as a traditional pie crust, but it was as easy as advertised.

Lemon Icebox Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
This was excellent! I used a homemade graham cracker crust. The filling was very sweet - one piece is definately the limit. I had never made meringue before and it went just perfectly. My only problem with the recipe was that it didn't fill the pie crust as well as I would have liked.

Curry Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
I rarely give such a bad review to a recipe, but this was not good. The curry flavor didn't seamlessly integrate itself with the dressing, but was overpowering. Also, the lemon juice gave the dish an almost vinegary, unpleasant taste. My fiance and I gave up, threw away the leftovers, and ordered pizza. I won't make this again.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
A new favorite. This tastes just like my favorite sesame noodles dish from Chinese restaurants. My fiance and I finished the whole thing! I doubled the green onions (and included more than just the white parts). Next time, I'll add shrimp or chicken. This was good with a side of broccoli.

Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
I made this for Christmas Eve dinner to go with my sister-in-law's paella. Everyone just loved it. The taste is creamy, smooth, and sweet, and the flan looks so pretty. I had trouble the first time I tried to melt the sugar, and it melded itself to the bottom of the pan. The second time, I put the heat on the lowest setting possible and was very, very patient. Don't give up on it, the end result is so tasty.

Kiki's Borracho (Drunken) Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This came out more like a soup than I was expecting. Maybe I added too much water? Even so, it was tasty. Just the right amount of heat.

Portuguese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This makes a TON of food! I halved the recipe and had enough leftovers to feed me and my fiance for another 4-5 meals. I added 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce to my halved recipe and the results were tasty.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
Weirdly awesome. I used black beans instead of kidney beans, and it was so tasty I probably won't ever try kidney beans. One of these is very filling.

Wow! The rosemary makes this soup great, and it's so easy to make. It freezes really well too.
